Dogs are affectionate creatures, and there's a reason why they are known as man's best friend.
A netizen from Brazil shared an adorable video on Facebook of how this family's beloved dog reacted to a pregnancy.
He explained in the caption, as written from the dog's perspective that the woman, Juliana, is 34 weeks pregnant and their dog, Penelope, just wanted to show her some affection.

The video shows Penelope nuzzling up against Juliana's belly while the mom-to-be gently rubs the dog's ears and head.
Juliana said that Penelope had only recently started to do that and it made her very emotional, almost as if the dog knows that a baby will soon join their family.
She added that Penelope would be a great "big sister" to her unborn child. The dog, wearing a cute pink jersey, can be seen rubbing her head against Juliana's belly.
At one point, she gently claws at Juliana and then rests her head on the belly while Juliana pets her head.
The video soon went viral and had been viewed more than 6,3 million times in less than a week, with more than 127,000 thousand shares.
Animals can sense when they are needed, as the tale of Jasper the Cat and Coco the blind dog proves.
